Following the Mozilla Firefox 1.0.8 / 1.5.0.2 updates the middle of this month, the Thunderbird project is now at 1.0.8 / 1.5.0.2.

Firefox 1.0.8/1.5.0.2 Updates

Mozilla Firefox 1.0.8 for the v1.0.x branch and Firefox 1.5.0.2 for the v1.5.x branch have now been released just minutes ago on April 13, 2006.

Firefox v1.0.8 and v1.5.0.2

Making headlines this morning is news of a preliminary release schedule for Mozilla Firefox v1.0.8 and Firefox v1.5.0.2, along with news of Mozilla Suite v1.7.13. Development work for Firefox v1.0.8 has already wrapped up and are targeting at a mid-March release, and the code freeze for v1.5.0.2 will occur this coming Monday (February 20, 2006) and will ship in early April. As the code-base between Firefox and Thunderbird is shared, developers are seeking for a simultaneous Thunderbird/Firefox v1.5.0.2 release. The Mozilla Firefox v1.0.x branch is going to be maintained until the end of May, which will be six months of support since the presence of the v1.5 branch, due to some Linux distributions (such as Fedora and Ubuntu) being dependent upon that branch (although there are ways to bypass this problem by tapping into alternative RPM repositories for Fedora). Of course, these schedules are tentative and may slip temporarily, similar to as we had seen last week with the Mozilla Firefox v2.0 Alpha. The preliminary schedule can be found at Mozilla Developer News.
